A chance rescue by a forest ranger in Arunachal Pradesh's remote jungles of Yazali last week has created a sensation after a photo of the critically-endangered catch went viral in conservationist circles. The pair of tortoises discovered were identified as the 'Impressed Tortoise', which is found in Southeast Asia, but never seen in India before.

Scientifically known as - Manouria impressa - the rare specimens were found in the jungle, about 1,700 kilometres away from its nearest known habitat in Western Myanmar.
